More about which case setup
  1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 39.99 after MIR and promo code.

    you want a good quality PSU, the rest of your build looks fine for what you want to do, personally the 6870 is OVERKILL for 1280x1024 so upgrade to a 1080 monitor later and you'll really see what that card can do!

    cases are 100% personal choice, i've never come across a case that improved heat/air flow that wasn't a $300+ case, go with what you like personally and what other reviews say about it.
  2. The three cases are about the same; just pick the one you like more.

    This ram is pretty much the same put $5 less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226191

    Also get a nicer PSU, you want the 80 plus.

    Yup, HD6870 is a bit overkill. You could cheap out a bit and go for the HD6850 which would be more than enough.

    500w is good but that Raidmax will blow up your PC. Try getting the Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W or the SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W

    No. Only get PSUs from (some) OCZ, Corsair, Seasonic, (some) Rosewill, XFX, and any more I can think of I'll add.

    Coolermaster makes great cases, not so much PSUs.

    Stop being cheap and pay a good amount for a PSU.
  7. Yeah, I wasted $120 Dollars buying crappy $40 PSU. Bad Idea
